My career centers on brand development and business growth using innovative and measurable marketing through digital means. I'm a senior manager experienced in B2B and B2C inbound and outbound campaigns that span traditional, promotional, and digital marketing media. I’ve been incredibly lucky to work and study with really brilliant and thoughtful people who influenced my life and who are even better connections for you than I am. Feel free to ask me about them. If you’re reading this, we should probably be getting lunch, coffee, or drinks soon, talking about your story and how you want to succeed. At some point, we might find ourselves working on a complex marketing or community problem together. So, reach out and let's connect. I'm on LinkedIn here:
